I’ve wanted for some time now to write a blog entry promoting my favorite open source project - AppFuse. Since I started developing web applications using AppFuse as a base, I can truly say that I’ve rediscovered the joy of software development. I’ve found no other technology or methodology that has allowed me to place as much focus as I now do on solving business problems and not on technology ramp-up or figuring out the eccentricities of “framework X.” In this article, Matt Raible, the founder of the AppFuse project, humbly states very compelling reasons that you should use AppFuse for your J2EE development. To summarize, here are the 7 reaons:

  1. Testing
  2. Integration
  3. Automation
  4. Security Features and Extensibility
  5. Code Generation with AppGen
  6. Documentation
  7. Community
